My very last Moon Beast pendant (I will not be making more of those. This is the very last pendant of this series). I actually found the cast by an accident in my drawer…thought I used them all last year. This one was was made for a friend. Cast in resin, painted with acrylics, sealed with several layers of matt varnish, eye is high quality taxidermy product. Not for sale.
In vertebrates, the eyeballs are direct extensions of the brain; that is, they evolved after the brain, and are literally unimpeded access to the cerebellum and cerebrum. Because of this, many ocular tumors or injuries can be far more dangerous to the brain than growths or injuries on any other part of the skull.
